LIMBS found a home with UNFD in 2018, ahead of the release of their debut album Father’s Son, which gives listeners a dark and brooding look at a young man’s journey out of religion as he comes to terms with both his upbringing and his own actions.. A conceptual album following a young man breaking free from his indoctrinated upbringing, the album explores the harm it causes and the strength in reclaiming your own life. In 2020, they now present new single ‘Empty Vessel’.
“’Empty Vessel,’ was inspired by my own struggles of balancing my personal life while also pursuing the perpetual dream of “success” as an artist,” shares vocalist Austin McAuley. “The song immerses the listener in themes of self-sacrifice, vulnerability and the constant desire to have one’s voice heard. The chorus beckons, ‘How long is the breath that I have to hold before I’m worth my weight in gold?’ This statement reflects the trials and tribulations of those who will do anything to make their dreams come true…but as the lyrics tell, “How does it feel? Only the lonely know.”
JC got a chance to sit with Austin McAuley (vocal), Jordan Hunter (guitar), and Joey DiBiase (drums) about their lineup changes, how their sound has evolved, and their new EP, “Only The Lonely Know” which is out now!
